Opportunities in the Financial Services Sector…

The financial services sector in Scotland is globally seen as the most significant in the UK outside London, with a wide range of services including banking, fund management, insurance, life assurance and pensions, asset servicing and professional services.  It employs over 100,000 people in the country and generates nearly £7bn for the Scottish economy.

The sector remains crucial to the overall success of the National economy, due not only to the number of people it employs and direct contribution to output, but also because of the impact the sector has on growth in the private sector.

As a leading centre for banking, retail savings and pensions, investment, professional services, and asset servicing, the strength of the financial services industry in Scotland lies in its diversity of offering.   With the sector comprising large multinationals alongside a range of highly successful indigenous financial services companies, the sector offers an exciting business environment requiring a highly skilled workforce. Ongoing structural change, increased regulation and movement of many financial services to Edinburgh and Glasgow, has resulted in Hamilton Forth having a wide portfolio of both permanent and contractor roles to offer.
